kim jong un has issued almost daily threats including the threat of nuclear strikes on the u.s. and seoul. the north threatened u.s. bases in the pacific following tough u.s.-led sanctions imposed after pyongyang's third nuclear test. pyongyang severed one of the last remaining hotlines to the south, put its troops on what it calls combat readiness and warned that, quote, war may break out at any time. it has already renounced the armistice that ended the korean war 60 years ago. it's all put south koreans on edge. >> translator: if north korea makes a misjudgment, south korea should deliver a strong punishment. >> reporter: so far north korea has not moved beyond rhetoric, despite its recent nuclear and rocket tests analysts doubt the north has yet mastered the technology to mount a nuclear warhead on a missile. kim jong un may be playing to a domestic audience, using the hysteria to rally his people. security officials warn he may be more reckless even than his father, the late kim jong il leading to fears of more conflict on the korean peninsula. >> security officials are

that perhaps kim jong-un, the north korean leader, heard the messages being sent by beijing, by russia, and so many others to dial it all back, to try to tone down the rhetoric that was calling for war, a nuclear conflict on the peninsula, even rockets going to the mainland united states. at the same time, some north korean experts were warning that kim jong-un was taking it too far. he was whipping up so much fervor for war inside north korea that when he had to back down, he could lose face, or worse yet, he would have to make good on some of his threats. what is sure at this point is that in the coming days and hours, everyone from washington, to beijing, from seoul to moscow, are going to be waiting, watching, and listening carefully for what comes from pyongyang. back to you. >> all right. jim, thank you very much. >>> the man behind all these threats, kim jong-un, a young leader who since taking the reins from his father further isolated the country from the rest of the world. one describes it as an organized crime family with a blood line of brutal leaders. athena jones has more on new

"the question is for south koreans, can we live peacefully with nuclear armed north korea? the answer is no". south korean lawmaker mj chung -- the son of the founder of hyundai -- believes his country can no longer sit on its hands, watching its belligerent neighbor develop nuclear weapons. he says its time for south korea to have its own nuclear arsenal. "the nuclear deterrence can be the only answer. we have and it would appear south koreans tend to agree. recent polls show that two- thirds of citizens surveyed support the idea, especially in the wake of north korea's third nuclear test, carried back in 1991, south korea volunt
, that the father, the grandfather of kim jong-un has exceeded now the direct threats against the united states, the threats of nuclear war on the peninsula, the threats of attacking hawaii, of attacking guam, of attacking the mainland united states with nuclear weapons. let's make clear. he doesn't have the capability to do that. but he is taking it to a different level. and there's a lot of people that are looking on and they're trying to calm the situation down. we heard today from south korea's defense ministry spokes man. listen -- >> translator: north korea's continuing threats against south korea such as saying it is entering a state of war, are never acceptable since it is harming peace and stability on the korean peninsula. the recent military exercises such as key resolve and bold eagle and the u.s. strategic bombers' deployment on the peninsula were defensive in nature against north korea's possible provocation. >> reporter: now, the real threat according to some veteran north korea watchers like dr. ham park of the university of georgia, is that the young north korean leader is back
community. >> suarez: the sanctions aim to make it more difficult for north korea's leader, kim jong-un, to finance his nuclear and missile programs. in december, the north successfully fired a long-range rocket, saying it was designed to orbit a satellite. and last month, north koreans cheered scientists who carried out the country's third nuclear test. that event directly provoked today's u.n. action. north korea's closest ally, china, even helped draft the sanctions. >> we want to see full implementation of the resolution. the top priority now is to defuse the tension, bring down the heat. ( applause ) >> suarez: instead, the sounds and images from pyongyang today were all about defiance. civilians and members of the military staged a mass rally and state television carried a direct threat against the u.s. >> ( translated ): since the united states is about to ignite a nuclear war, we will be exercising our right to preemptive nuclear attack against the headquarters of the aggressor in order to protect our supreme interest. >> suarez: north korea also threatened this week to nullify
making process. obviously, there's a lot of speculation. people are wondering, did kim jong-un get the message that was delivered by china, by russia, and so many others, to dial back the rhetoric and all the talk of near war on the peninsula, missile strikes on the continental united states. did he hear that message? is that why we're seeing all of this? even some north korean experts say kim jong-un was painting himself into a corner with all of that. he was whipping up so much national fervor and getting people geared up to go to war that it could backfire on him. he could lose credibility or even worse, he can find himself in a position where he had to make good on some of those threats in order to maintain a standing in the eyes of his own people. there's little doubt, at this point, that over the course of the next hours and days, all eyes from washington to beijing, from here in seoul to moscow, are going to be on north korea and kim jong-un to try to see what he does say, to try to listen closely and find out what the next move of pyongyang will be. alison? >> okay, jim cla

comments from commentsun as he visits this army unit -- comments from kim jong un. the language he used and the specific nature. he told the troops stationed that once an order is issued, you should break the waste of the crazy enemies, totally cut their windpipes and show them clearly what a real war is like. very fiery rhetoric, even in the context of the kind of stuff coming out of north korea in recent days. he also told them precisely what to target -- radar posts, 130 meter rockets, 150 millimeter howitzers and missile should be targeted, showing how much appears to know about the military assets station. showing he is a strong military commander in the vein of his father, giving on the spot guidance. but i think some context as an order. he is not ordering the immediate destruction of the island. it is more how his troops should respond in the event of a conflict. i think that is how it is seen here in south korea. the defense millet -- defense spokesman refering to this as a psychological -- but more movements as north korea does expanse of military exercises scheduled to act --

up. victor, alison? >> jim, we saw the photographs just a few seconds ago of kim jong-un with four generals behind him and the map in the background talks about targets in the u.s. what is the likelihood that kim jong-un and his army could pull that off? >> in a word, zero. they cannot hit the u.s. mainland with what they have now. if they were to launch that missile that they put up to put a satellite in orbit, they'd have to leave it on the launch pad probably ten days as they fueled it up. they simply don't have the capability, they're too vulnerable, but they do have medium and long-range missiles with a range of about 1,300 miles the longest ones and that does put guam and japan within range, those missiles work and there are concerns over that, the concerns are over the more low level things they could do, the cyber attacks like we saw in the banks, the incident like the "cheonan" that was lost in 2010, those are things that south korea and the u.s. are keeping a close eye on tonight. >> jim clancy in seoul, south korea, for us, thank you. >>> we've got much more ahead this h

this kim jong-un is not being well received. and i think they are trying to kind of boost his status to some sort of wartime leader. owe obviously, it bears very close watching. >> this just the latest sign of the rising tensions between the two koreas. the north has put its military units on combat-ready status following joint military exercises between south korea and the united states and the recent united nations sanctions against the north. man through chance is at the border between north and south korea. good morning, matthew. >> reporter: carol, good morning. that's right. a lot of tension is growing here. those latest statements coming from north korea. saying they've cut off that key hot line between the two militaries north and south. it's significant because there aren't that many opportunities for the two militaries which face off across that border. to communicate with each other. and so, this is obviously, you know, going to impact potentially on communication between the two sides, particularly over the -- what's calls the industrial complex. that's where the hot line
came after north korea's young, unpredictable and volatile leader kim jong-un called an urgent meeting to order the nation's strategic rocket units on standby. part of the steadily escalating and dangerous rhetoric here. unlike in the past, the u.s. has pushed back hard. flying two nuclear-capable stealth bombers on a practice run last week, just 50 miles from north korea's coast. a show of force that's a part of the new so-called u.s./south korean counter provocation plan. >> we hope to never to have to put those plans into effect. >> reporter: u.s. intelligence doesn't believe that north korea has a nuclear weapon that fits atop a missile. but that's what they have been looking to perfect. they do have missiles that could possibly hit hawaii or alaska. while an attack on the united states is highly unlikely, the fear here in seoul is that these dangerous provocations could lead to miscalculations on either side and escalate into conflict. for "good morning america," i'm martha raddatz, in seoul. >> all right, thank you, martha. >>> in other news this morning, crews in arkansas are ra
for the young north korean leader kim jong-un to bolster his hardline credentials and seniority at home. >> first and foremost for his domestic audience. simply without the support of the military, he won't be around for very much longer. so he has to bolster his support from the brass. that won't be so easy to do in a culture in north korea where age matters, he's 28, 29 years old. >> and the young kim isn't averse to voicing a few threats himself. on this recent tour of border islands he told ecstatic troops they'd throw enemies into the kol dron, break their waist and crack their windpipes. seems to have been exactly what they wanted to hear. fredric fredricka, it's not just the threat, it's the actions as well. this is a regime that's tested a long-range missile, carried out a third nuclear test. a big concern is that it could one day soon gain the technology to carry out some of those threats. >> yeah. and, matthew, diving in here, south korean officials today saying that cyber attacks we reported on yesterday, i think 32,000 computers damaged and servers, came from inside china. t

. north korean dictator, kim jong-un warning releasing video showing imagined attacks on washington and seoul declared that the armistice that halted the korean war was invalid. pretty extreme stuff even by north korean standards and in a pretty short period of time. what's your take on this? do you think he is calling the shots? >> well, there's some debate about that, michael. there are some people who think he's in charge. other folks think maybe his uncle's in charge. it's impossible to know. i think you put it exactly right. both in terms of the extremeness of the statements and the pace of the statements, they've certainly increased these last couple of months. and as you said by standards of north korean rhetoric chrks are pretty bad. they say pretty intense things. if i take any comfort in this, and i don't, the comfort i take is that most of these provocations have not been north korea directly poking south korea. it's a missile test or it's a statement or they're not going to honor an agreement. there hasn't been any direct confrontation. i think that's good. but what worr

behavior now by kim jong-un, which i think really are calling into question his judgment on the part of people in north korea. certainly and ionizing all of asia. and i say all of asia, because i know it's causing discomfort in every capital. under these conditions, if we were to simultaneously deployed those controls over the currency, though sanctions, and step up on the anti-proliferation initiative that -- security proliferation initiative that we had in place before, where south korea, the united states and other countries were stopping ships that were bringing contraband, bringing the illicit exports, you know, contraband -- one of the things they do is math. they do a lot of drugs. missile parts. you know, armaments, stop those chips on the high seas and send it back. suddenly of cut off the means of obtaining hard currency. so the legislation that we are working on will address specifically that approach that was tried in 2005, along with the anti-proliferation activities to interdict. over on this side, yes, ma'am. >> thank you so much for your excellent presentation about t
